Full presence mindfulness takes you beyond the self.
It opens the door to a world of wonder – a new outlook on life.
Because there’s more to life than self-improvement.
Mindfulness training can be valuable for treating many difficulties in our stressed-out society, including anxiety, tension, and depression. It can also help people find more joy and appreciation in the simple, daily activities that make up our lives.
Yet mindfulness has the potential to offer much more. When we learn to be fully present to our own experience, we can discover and break through the habits and negative patterns that limit us. We can learn more about what it means to live life fully.
Full Presence Mindfulness (FPM) offers the same benefits as other forms of mindfulness training, but moves to a deeper level.
Therapeutic mindfulness. Mindfulness today often follows a medical model that helps people deal with painful symptoms.
Gateway mindfulness. Sometimes mindfulness is also presented as a gateway to new insights. Many people who complete mindfulness training discover the joy that gateway mindfulness can bring.
Full Presence Mindfulness (FPM). FPM introduces a new vision of what it means to be fully engaged in life. It demonstrates how to inhabit many dimensions of experience at once. Approached through this new vision of reality, mindfulness practice can reach its full potential. The practitioner learns to be fully present to their own experience and can discover and break through the patterns that limit them.
By activating the FPM vision, you learn how to open up your own possibilities. This shift happens easily and naturally, and you can learn the basics of what you need to know in a single 8-week training. By simply attuning to what is going on in each moment—starting with breathing, hearing, and seeing—you lay the foundation for a new way of being.
Why practice Full Presence Mindfulness?
Because experience is multi-dimensional.
We live in our bodies and know through our senses. We think and feel, act on our values, and build relationships. We tell stories, both to ourselves and to others.
Full Presence Mindfulness invites us to explore every dimension of our experience, activating our finest intelligence and most heartfelt feelings.
From body and breath, to the senses, thoughts, and feelings, each aspect of our experience can open a gateway into a world without boundaries or limitations.
Full Presence Mindfulness is a key that unlocks this gateway.
